LEGO To Release Women In NASA Set

legonasawomen

LEGO Ideas has announced the winner of the Second 2016 Review Stage and it is the Women of NASA.

In 2016, 10,000 supporters on the LEGO Ideas fan-created projects site backed a Women of NASA set. LEGO announced on Tuesday it will produce the set, which was proposed by Lego fan and science writer and editor Maia Weinstock.

The approval of the set comes on the heels of popular 2016 movie “Hidden Figures,” which explores the contributions of black women to the space agency and the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit in the early 1960s. Katherine Johnson, one of the scientists featured in the film, appears in the LEGO minifig set.

The project also includes computer scientist Margaret Hamilton, astronaut Sally Ride, astronomer Nancy Grace Roman and astronaut Mae Jemison.

Weinstock’s vision for the set includes minifig representations of each woman and a group of vignettes that feature mini versions of the space shuttle and the Hubble Space Telescope.

LEGO previously delved into the world of NASA with the Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity Rover set, which is now retired.

LEGO fans also threw their support behind a set of groundbreaking women scientists, which came out in 2014. That set has also been retired, so Lego enthusiasts will likely be excited about having a new group of women-scientists minifigs available.

The Women of NASA set is still awaiting final product design. Pricing and availability information should be revealed late this year or in early 2018.
